Fusing murky atmospheric ambience to hip-hop inspired beats, the "Nowcast" EP takes off in a stratospheric journey. 2% loops samples into vaporous drones, creating a milky haze for his melodies to refract within, then drops beats that land you back on solid ground. Additionally, tracks like "Neaps" and "Front" offer a beatless diversion that keep you lifted in this whirling, sun-drenched horizon.
Trenton McElhinney, the name behind 2%, composed the entire "Nowcast" EP on a Monome, a live sample-cutting platform. Using a modified version of MLR for Max/Msp, Trenton recorded tracks in single live takes and used minimal post-processing. This gives his EP a raw, live feel and emphasizes the elegance of it's own simplicity.
